Applied Acoustics Systems is the kind of developer that puts a strong scientific background in service of making noise. And that’s a thing of beauty. AAS has been at it since 1998, when founders Marc-Pierre Verge and Philippe Dérogis funnelled the acoustics research they did for their PhDs into a music software company.
Presently, Verge is also vice editor in chief of the European Acoustical Association’s scientific journal and Dérogis has basically all the degrees in acoustics. What happens when level 1000 uber-geeks like these two get into plug-ins? Oh, boy!
AAS is specialized in the physical modeling of acoustic instruments, but is also into those lucrative analog synth replicas. In addition, AAS recently presented the Multiphonics CV-1 plug-in, a full-blown virtual modular system with enough modules to keep you busy for a while.
